"I am so glad you are here!" said
Georgie again. .
Poor Anna! her tdemst i t esh i
words, but those few words c6ntai6td a
volume of sorrow. Her outward voy
had been prosperouiis anJexei ng y
pleasant. She was leaving poverty be- I

man to whom her whole heart was -
given, J wbd *d. as the flewvvnce

chosen a husband from amongst half
a dozen men, but it was Jamie she 1
wanted and Jamie to whom she was go

tured his delight when he should rush i
on board the "Petrel" to welcome her,
but the "Petrel" arrived and there was
no Jamie. Nor the next day, nor the ,
next day; she settled herself in a hotel.
wrote to him and waited.
After three days' waiting a lady was
ushered into her room-a lady most
distinctly of the strong-minded genus.
Not a bad-looking woman, Anna
thdught to herself as the two stood
watchfully regarding one another; not
bad looking, nor vulgar, nor quite a
lady, nor just at this moment quite at
her ease.
"You are Miss Edgar, aren't you?"
she said, after that pause of inspection.
"II is rather awkward for us, you see.
I am Mrs. Barrington-you won't take
it kindly, I am afraid--but Jem would
not come himself, he would send me.
Now what can we do to put things as
right as they can be?"
So the delay was explained. The de
lighted bridegroom had not rushed to
meet his bride because he was already
husband to another woman. It went
hard with Anna, but sL was a proud
woman and compelled herself to give a
cold attention to the explanations that
t Mrs. Barrington forced upon her. As
. if, being betrayed, it mattered to her
how the thing was done! A rescue from
danger on the one side, a nursing
through an illness on the other. What
s did it matter to the woman they had
cheated? Mrs. Barrington's offers of
s assistance were haughtily declined, and
4he first steamer that left Melbourne
carried Anna Edgar with $t.
"JidqrandaeseAhiss,Qengiawhen
you gave me the exact passage money
in that purse 'towards the house plen

"Don't ask home questions, darling,"
answered Georgie with kisses. "Lie

disaster secret, the Edgars had decided
to speak+ f it openly at ones, and Mfrend
s ly gilts o all kinds came into show the
kindly feeling of the neighbors. The
little house overflowed like a cornu
copia with fruit and flowers.
Geoffrey hung about, ready to nurse,
I run errands, write letters, or do any
thing that could be required of him, as
long as hls business could Spare him,
and then unwillingly announced that
t he must go.
"You will say it is heartless of me if I
suggest that it is an ill wind that blows
I nobody any good," he said, squeezing
- Geore's hand as they sat over the
twilight tire; "but you see Anna could
a not have done me a better turn than by
coming to grief in this way. All your
i misfortune seems to be good lunck to
I me. If she had not come back I should
i have been afraid to ask you to come to
me, Georgia, daring, for you would
have said you could not leave Josie. I
cannot offer you anything like what
; you are used to or what you ought to
t have, but you May you do not 5mind
Sbeing poor."
e "I like it, Goeff, dear," answered
George; "and, besides, your poverty
is wealth compared with ours."
Three-and-twenty was Anna Edgar
when she went out to Australia in the
"PetreL" At three-and-thirty she was
Anna Edgar still, and the "Petrel" was
steaming towards England with James
Barrington on board.
The little house in Oxford road had
proved a cheery home during these ten
years to two busy and therefore happy
women. Josie had tended the invalid to
the clse of her pilgrimage, and now
aided her young daughter in fae su
perinteudence of the household; Anna
had stepped into the place that Georgle
left vacant, and had become famous
through the neighborhood as a teacher
of elocation. Her romantic story, in
stead of cosvering her with contempt
a she expected, had brought her hosts
of sympathisers and admirers. Life
had prospered with the sisters, and they
eouid now afford to work leisurely If
they chose.
On a day in August, Anna Edgar was
Staking decided holiday. GeOrgie and
her babes had just left after one of
Stheir frequent gleeful visits, and ahe
was raesting in preparation for the next
event. Her musie w open on the
piano, and her blottUing book on the
writing table; but her attention wan
wholly taken up with certain patterns
of laces and silks and velvets that were
spread before her. She was evidently
ehoesing a dress or dressa for some
important *essionaad she ingered
one pattern after another with linger
ing ear. Anna had always beean hand
some, but she waa handaoIme now than
ten years beck, and to-day, with an ex
preseloi of gentle contentment upon
her face, she looked parttcualarly well.

"There is some mistake, I think," she
said, drawing herself back hapghtily

child," he said, pointing to a little girl
ina smusing frqok, who ung', dLf
bekind him.
Anna looked curiously at the child of
the woman who had supplanted her. m
She bore a softened resemblance to her
mother, but In her face was a strange
expression indicative of Anna knew not Ci
what.
"Indeed," said Anna, and paeued in- P
quiringly.
"I have brought her with me," re b
sumed James; "she is all I have. It is
almost two year since she lost her
mother."
"And you probably wish her to be
educated in England. I am sorry to h
hear of your loss; it is a great charge tl
to be left with so young a child to
train."
Alna was aware that she spoke
stiffly and Indifferently, but she was
still in the dark as to the meaning of a
the present interview, and she resented s
what she looked upon as an unwar
rantable intrusion.
"I brought her with me beeause
could not do without the only creature
I have belonging to me, and, besides, I
want to show her to an English doctor.
Anna, you do not knaw what my lone
lines is, and how ill I can bear to be fý
alone. I never could bear to be by my- a
self. It was that that brought about
what you must look on as my treachery
toward you. You know how I urged b
you to come out to me, and how you b
would still wait till I could come to
fetch you. It was too lonely, and then
I met with Jessie. She told you all a
about it; she was good tome and I mar"
ried her. Then you came out, two
months too late, and it broke my heart,
Anna, for it was you always that I
loved." g
"Hush!" exclaimed Anna, aghast, as
he ended with an appeal in his voice. b
'rT sesrelty tat talk-beftore
wife's daghter."
"Do you not know," he said, bitterly, ,
"the child is stone deaf? The same ca
lamity that deprived me of her mother
took away her hearing. We may say
what we choose before her; she only
knows what we say on our fingers."
"Poor little soudl!" said Anna, sad
denly relenting toward the muate littl
gure, and taking her into her tricidlp
a m she ui sadoestd neeoerth
expression that she had noticed on he a
child's face.
"It is a heavy trial to her and to me,
and she has no mother. Anna, I have
come to see if you can be won to forgive t
me the past and take the place now that
you have always had in my heart. lam
a rich man now in everytting but hap- c
piness; I can give you all.the luxuries I
you, were born to, and if you do not i
choose to go to Australia I will sell my t
property there and purchase an estate t
where you please in England."
Anna had released the child, and now
stood proudly confronting its father. t
"I am exceedingly glad to hear of your c
prosperity; it must surpass even your r
expectations, and I trust that you'may r
long enjoy it. But, as I sald at th be
ginning, you have made a mistake= you s
presence here is uncalled for."
"I know," said James, eareestly,
"that you must even yet feel sore and
angry when you think of my treatment
of you; but you do not realize how much
I too have undergone. Jessie was a good
woman, a good wife, but she was not
the woman that I loved."
"More shame for you," interrupted
Anna.
James put up his hand imploringly.
"You speak truly; but it was you
you always that I carried in my heart,
and it is you that I have come back te
seek. Anna, if you are still angry with
me, will you not have companssiaon O the
child? Think of her helplessness, for
what am I as a guardian to that little
thing? Women are always temner,
hearted, and the child has never of
fended you. Think of her need and my
need, and of how I have loved you a-1
ways."
"And betrayed me," said Anls; oit
he went on unheeding her.
"And how I love you stilL Will you I
not yield? You are still Anna Edgar.c
"I am," said she, blushing in spite of
herself; "but here-s Dr. Wilberorce. I
had better refer you to him, for this day
I month I shall be Mrs. Wilberfore."
"Anna, Annal am I too late? Have I
come acros the world in search of you
in vain?"
"You forget, perhaps," she answered
coldly, "'that there was a time when ye
led me aeamsa the world in search of you
in vain. I loved you once, but I am only
a woman, and if I were weak enough tc
love you still I should scarcely have
courage to risk a second betrayaL"

These natives may be said to lve
largely in a world of imagination, inss'
much as their customs and habits of
living are based to a great extent upon
ideas and beliefs wholly supernatural.
Creation, from their point of view, is
peopled by strange-monsters and de
mona, which, while morally hostile to
man, may be rendered friendly and even
hllpful with the aid of certain eere
monials of a quasi religious character.
For example the most important of
these monsters is a serpent which has
a head at each end of its body and a
human head in the middle. To touch
this strange monster these natives be'
lieve is death, all the joints of the vie
tim becoming dislocated, but speelatly
favored individuals are enabled to per
f4rm wonderful feats by wearing a
Ibt of its skin, while its eyes, used as
sg stones, will kill any animal, even
whales. Another of these fabulousbe.
itgs is a wild woman who lives in the
woods. She has enormous breasts, and
edrries a basket, into which she puts
children whom she steals for the pur
pose of eating.
iOne of the most remarkable of the
f tivals celebrated by the Indians is
acarnlval of ghosts, which is held etch
Winter. It seems to be derived from a
ntadltion that tells of a journey, made
an adventurous individual to a region
neath the earth, inhabited by phtna
Stms. The celebration itself is a mimic
